Break out your vision boards, it’s time to make the life-altering decision of which high school boy to date. Or is it? In the just-dropped season two trailer for Never Have I Ever, the pros and cons become irrelevant when genius strikes: what’s stopping a highly motivated and energetic girl from dating two boys at once?
Maitreyi Ramakrishnan shared the Netflix announcement last week that the sophomore, Meghan Thee Stallion-inspired season of Never Have I Ever will return on July 15 and today, we get a little sneak peek.
Spoiler alert: there will be "swearing and sex talk," much to show creator, Mindy Kaling's dismay.
Cue both as Devi (series star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) realizes that she can split her time between potential boyfriends Ben and Paxton, enjoying the best of both boyfriend worlds (brains on the one side, and smokin’ hot chemistry on the other) during her “last chance” to have an American high school boyfriend before she returns to India.
Despite the risky plan, things seem to be going Devi’s way in the second season of Kaling’s coming-of-age comedy. Even though Devi’s BFFs keep insisting that she’s making the wrong decision (“When you’re old and on your deathbed, whose naked body do you want to be picturing?” asks Eleanor who, along with Fabiola, is certain the answer is Paxton).
Devi’s ironclad logic, however? Why not picture making out with them both?
Suddenly, though, there’s a situation. A new girl shows up in Devi’s class, one she assesses as being both cooler and prettier than she is (also: Indian). Sizing up her presumed competition, Devi begins to worry about her ability to hold the attention of both boys. And keep up her grades. And get into college. And not get caught by her mom with her tongue in Paxton’s mouth… err, you can’t win them all.
It seems fair to assume that both comedy and drama ensue this season — the kind that not even a thoughtful, well-laid-out construction paper pros and cons chart can keep at bay. Bring it on.
